Wine Advocate 96 points - The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Diamond Mountain tastes like a first-growth Pauillac. Notes of licorice, creme de cassis, graphite, beef blood and forest floor are all present in this full-bodied, extraordinarily pure, majestic wine that coats the palate, but is neither heavy nor harsh. This magnificent, dramatic Cabernet should continue to drink well for 20-25 years.

Wine maker notes
Diamond Mountain overlooks the town of Calistoga in the northern reaches of Napa Valley and is part of the Mayacamas Mountains which frame the western edge of the valley. At elevations ranging from 1,000 to 1,800 feet, the vineyard soils are composed of fine volcanic dust and loam, providing rich flavors of dark cherry and bittersweet chocolate with relatively soft tannins and a layered mouthfeel.

Producer
Established in 1995, Lokoya is a collection of four distinct Cabernet Sauvignons from four of Napa Valley’s most celebrated mountain appellations. These limited-production, single-vineyard wines are 100 percent Cabernet Sauvignon. Cabernet Sauvignon as lens, site as conveyor-The grape variety and winemaking for the four wines remain constant, allowing the vineyard sites to shine with the climate, soils, sunlight and drainage all fully expressed in the glass. Given the lofty provenance of the sites, the vineyards demand constant engagement-leaving no room for error. The deep understanding of the vineyard trajectory in each vintage comes from the long collaboration between Winemaker Chris Carpenter and Vineyard Manager Mariano Navarro.
